About Aaron Hamburger

Aaron Hamburger is the author of the story collection The View From Stalin's Head (Rome Prize), and the novels Faith for Beginners and Nirvana is Here. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Crazyhorse, Tin House, Poets & Writers, Boulevard, and O, the Oprah Magazine. He has taught writing at Columbia University, the George Washington University, and the Stonecoast M.F.A. Program.

Teaching style: As a writing student once himself, one of the things Aaron has learned over the years is that a writing career is a lifelong process that transcends any particular work. When he reads student writing, he's not only looking at how to improve the work at hand, but also trying to figure out which tendencies of word choice, characterization, detail, etc. need encouragement and which ones need sharpening.
